Fluidity. 2016. 16 in x 24 in. Prints on Metallic Paper.
When acrylic paint is exposed to water, the mixture creates a vibrant cloud of color. The silky form rushes to the bottom of the tank, where the paint begins to settle only to release more pigment as it continues to blend with the water.
“Fluidity” is a series of soft, ethereal photographs that capture the random qualities of the fusion between pigment and water. The images are full of intensity as the paint swirls unpredictably around the tank and the diversity of color evokes a unique emotional response to each photograph.
While it may seem trivial to pour paint into a tank of water, the result is something both beautiful and unexpected.
